Posts Tagged ‘Planned Parenthood’

The last couple of days I have been breaking out of the typical mold as to how I post entries on this blog. I usually do not delve too deeply into issues that tie to politics, that is not really the purpose of my writings. However, my personal belief system, and consequently this blog, is solidly pro-life. So, I feel like I cannot help but share the following information with you.

Be an informed voter. Please know that if you vote for Barack Obama in the rapidly approaching election for the Presidency, that you are voting for the unrestricted and unregulated murder of innocent children. Obama’s desire should he succeed in being elected President of the United States, is to sign the Freedom of Choice Act. This would destroy every single state law limiting or regulating abortion.

I pray that any voters out there who object to the continued willfull decimation of our country’s innocent unborn babies, will stand up against this evil agenda. We have a long way to go towards fighting the culture of death we currently face, and allowing this man to take office will push our culture into an even more terrible age that COMPLETELY devalues life.

You can read more about this matter below. Please join me in prayer and deed. Fight against those who wish to destroy the blessings sent to us as children.

Obama’s Abortion Bombshell: Unrestricted Abortion Over Wishes of Individual States a Priority for Presidency

By Peter J. Smith

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 10, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Barack Obama, the presumptive pro-abortion nominee of the Democratic Party, has plans to reward the allies that helped him topple Hillary Clinton from her throne by making total unrestricted abortion in the United States his number one priority as president.

In light of Obama’s recently achieved status as the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Focus on the Family’s CitizenLink has decided to remind its supporters that almost one year has passed since Obama made his vows to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund that abortion would be the first priority of his administration.

“The first thing I’d do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act,” Obama said in his July speech to abortion advocates worried about the increase of pro-life legislation at the state level.

The Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) is legislation Obama has co-sponsored along with 18 other senators that would annihilate every single state law limiting or regulating abortion, including the federal ban on partial birth abortion.

The 2007 version of FOCA proposed: “It is the policy of the United States that every woman has the fundamental right to choose to bear a child, to terminate a pregnancy prior to fetal viability, or to terminate a pregnancy after fetal viability when necessary to protect the life or health of the woman.”

Obama made his remarks in a question-and-answer session after delivering a speech crystallizing for abortion advocates his deep-seated abortion philosophy and his belief that federal legislation will break pro-life resistance and end the national debate on abortion.

“I am absolutely convinced that culture wars are so nineties; their days are growing dark, it is time to turn the page,” Obama said in July. “We want a new day here in America. We’re tired about arguing about the same ole’ stuff. And I am convinced we can win that argument.”

Besides making abortion on demand a “fundamental right” throughout the United States, FOCA would effectively nullify informed consent laws, waiting periods, health safety regulations for abortion clinics, etc.

Furthermore, medical professionals and institutions that refused abortions also would lose legal protections. FOCA would expose individuals, organizations, and governments – including federal, state, and local government agencies – to costly civil actions for purported violations of the act.

“Thirty-five years after Roe, abortion supporters, like Senator Obama, are dismayed that abortion remains a divisive issue and that their radical agenda has not been submissively accepted by the American public,” states Denise M. Burke, vice president of Americans United for Life.

“Rather than confronting legitimate issues concerning the availability and safety of abortion, they choose to blatantly ignore the concerns and interests of everyday Americans, as well as the growing evidence that abortion hurts women.”

Hillary Clinton, once the longtime Democratic front-runner and anticipated abortion president, conceded defeat last Saturday to Obama, who captured the nomination from her after a long and bitter campaign.

Obama has won the crucial endorsement of abortion activist Frances Kissling, who broke from the ranks of other radical feminist leaders earlier this year to endorse Obama, saying Obama, not Clinton, would better use the bully pulpit of the presidency to accomplish their aims and end the culture wars over abortion.

The Planned Parenthood organization is already an abomination to our society because of it’s blatant disregard for human life and God’s law, evidenced by the multiple abortions (murders) committed by them every day. This alone, displays the evil influences at work within their ranks, but unfortunately there is more. Aiding and abetting criminals in their pursuits of sexual abuse and assault can now be added to the list. Planned Parenthood’s sickening legacy continues to be revealed, and I hope and pray that more and more people will be able to see their agenda for what it truly is: destruction and hatred.

Abortionists to surrender records of child rape?
Court reviews Planned Parenthood’s extensive ‘cover-up’ of sexual abuse

Planned Parenthood clinic in Cincinnati, Ohio

Amid fierce accusations that Planned Parenthood has systematically concealed cases of statutory rape and sexual abuse from authorities, the organization may be required hand over revealing patient records in a precedent-setting case.

Ohio clinic staff are said to have deliberately concealed the statutory rape of a 14-year-old girl abused by her school’s soccer coach. The trainer, age 21, drove the pregnant girl to the Cincinnati abortion clinic after he discovered she was carrying his child.

According to the Alliance Defense Fund, the ADF filed a friend-of-the-court brief with the Ohio Supreme Court Monday. The organization claim the abortion provider frequently fails to notify authorities when underage children have been sexually abused.

“The health and safety of young girls trumps Planned Parenthood’s desire for secrecy,” ADF Senior Legal Counsel Jeff Shafer said. “Ohio law mandates that Planned Parenthood report the sexual abuse of minors, and evidence that may reveal the organization’s violation of that legal obligation may not be hidden.”

ADF is asking the Ohio court to reverse an earlier appellate court decision preventing the girl and her parents from having access to clinic records that may indicate routine cover-up of statutory rape and other sexual abuse.

The child’s parents sued Planned Parenthood when they learned staff performed an abortion on their daughter at the request of her soccer coach without contacting authorities, a requirement in cases of statutory rape. Neither the clinic nor the coach informed the girl’s parents of her abortion or sexual activity.

ADF filed the lawsuit to collect clinic documents that could reveal a history of illegal statutory rape cover-up. A judge ordered Planned Parenthood to release specific records; however, the abortion provider appealed the original decision, and an Ohio appellate court ruled in favor of the clinic. The case is now being heard by the Ohio Supreme Court.

“Planned Parenthood is not above the law,” ADF-allied attorney David Langdon said. “Planned Parenthood is attempting to hide behind inapplicable physician-patient privilege in an apparent effort to protect itself.”

The case is just one more of a series of incidents involving Planned Parenthood’s failure to report adult sex with minors and underage pregnancies.

As WND reported earlier, a lawsuit was filed in Warren County, Ohio, against Planned Parenthood, alleging the facility provided an abortion to a teenage girl after a father sought the procedure to cover up his sexual abuse of the teen.

Dana Cody, a lawyer who filed the action on behalf of the girl, said rather than report the abuse, as required under state law, “Planned Parenthood went ahead and was complicit with the abortion.”

The abuse continued for another 18 months before it was reported by a basketball coach, and the father eventually was convicted of sexual assault.

In a separate case, a pro-life organization in Waco, Texas, called for an explanation of a large discrepancy between statistics regarding statutory rape cases Planned Parenthood said it reported and the number of cases actually documented by law enforcement or other authorities.

Despite prevalent criticism for performing abortions on underage girls and shielding statutory rapists by not reporting them to authorities, Planned Parenthood has continued the practice, with many new cases of underage girls, according to investigations of violations of state criminal reporting laws. Under Title X funding, through which many clinics gain a significant amount of revenue, the abortion provider has reportedly put itself at risk of losing funding for refusing to follow state laws – including reporting laws.

When I think of Mother’s Day, it brings to my mind happy thoughts of the memories I have shared with with the Mothers and Grandmothers in my family. It brings to my mind images of the special moments I have had as a Mother myself, with my own children. It brings to my mind pictures of newborn babies, children’s songs, and books read snuggling close together on the couch.

Apparently, it brings something else to the minds of the people at Planned Parenthood. Unbelieveably, they see Mother’s Day as the perfect opportunity to fund-raise for their organization. You know, raise money to squelch family growth and to pay for the murder of innocent babies. Do you think that is a bit of a stretch? Do you even have a hard time believing that they could come up with the nerve to use the day set aside to honor motherhood for their evil practices? Please, read more below, it is eye-opening to be certain.

Abortionists use Mother’s Day for fundraising
‘You have to admire the utter chutzpah of the people at Planned Parenthood’

Planned Parenthood, the U.S. abortion industry’s biggest presence, is using Mother’s Day to promote its conferences and raise funds, triggering a jaw-dropping reaction among those who battle its agenda.

“You have to admire the utter chutzpah of the people at Planned Parenthood,” said statement on the American Life League website, which has a specific STOPP program to reveal Planned Parenthood’s activities.

“You would think that of all the holidays of the year, this organization that kills the babies of more than 255,000 mothers a year, would find little to celebrate on Mother’s Day. But you would be wrong,” the group said.

The organization said it had received e-mails from several Planned Parenthood corporate divisions “asking for donations to Planned Parenthood in honor of mothers on Mother’s Day. Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, D.C., brazenly says:”

“You can show your appreciation for your mother’s love and devotion by making a gift in honor or in memory of her to Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington. Mother’s Day is one day we can honor the women who have shaped our lives. … Making a gift to PPMW helps generations of women, mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, nieces, and daughters…”
ALL noted the New York City office has written:

“With Mother’s Day just around the corner … you’re probably thinking about how to show the special women in your life how much you love and appreciate them. Well, we’ve got a great idea for you! Why not honor the special women in your life by taking one simple action to help empower women all around the world? It’s easy – click here to join us in urging Congress to increase funding for international family planning programs…”
LifeNews.com reported on another from Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Richards shared part of an editorial her daughter wrote saying she got her pro-abortion views from her mother and grandmother, former Texas Gov. Ann Richards.

“It’s true that I have had lots of rewarding moments in my career. So did my mother,” Cecile wrote, according to LifeNews. “But knowing that my daughter is carrying on the legacy of fighting that my mother passed to me trumps ’em all.”
Part of a promotional message from Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood, seeking donations to the abortion industry leader on Mother’s Day
It took her all of three paragraphs to ask for money.

That fund-raiser has been posted on the website of Jill Stanek, who also serves as a columnist for WND.

“As Mother’s Day approaches, I am grateful for the opportunity to make a difference and hope you’ll join me,” Richards wrote.

“These pro-abort lunatics from Planned Parenthood are really out of their minds. Let me see if I’ve got this … we should ‘celebrate’ mother’s day by aborting (killing) babies?” wrote a blogger at A Catholic View.

“This pathetic woman is so psychologically and emotionally invested in abortion she has no semblance of conscience left,” Stanek wrote. “If and when she has grandchildren, I’m sure she’ll use them too.”

She called the “Happy Mother’s Day” greetings as “grotesque” as the organization’s much-criticized “Choice on Earth” campaign at Christmas.

The American Life League said it has a response.

“We encourage all of our readers to take action and call attention to this latest outrage by Planned Parenthood. Write a letter to the editor. Or demonstrate outside Planned Parenthood…” the group said.

At Silent No More Awareness Campaign, a campaign of Priests for Life and Anglicans for Life, spokeswoman Janet Morana said the solitications are “beyond appalling.”

“This is an organization that has turned Mother’s Day into a painful reminder of terminated children for millions and millions of women. To ask for money on this day so that it can traumatize even more women is the ultimate in insensitivity,” she said.

The Planned Parenthood corporate branch for North and South Dakota and Minnesota was using a different angle, promoting its “Making the Connections” conference on Mother’s Day weekend at a charge of $90.

It’s promoted as a retreat “where mothers and their 10-12 year old daughters have tons of fun together while learning about puberty changes…”

Judie Brown, president of American Life League, said the solicitations have a morbid message.

“It’s simply horrifying to think that anyone involved in abortion – even Planned Parenthood – could have the audacity to claim any association at all with a day designed to salute a mother’s selfless love for her children,” she said.

She cited the words of Jatrice Gaiter, the Washington PP chief, urging supporters to support her business, which is “to ensure that every child is wanted, nurtured, and enormously loved.”

“Can Planned Parenthood be serious?” Brown asked. “Ms. Gaiter’s words have a ghastly ring to them. How is it that a beautiful baby, which she describes as ‘nurtured and enormously loved,’ can be violently put to death in the offices that she overseas…”

Planned Parenthood was founded under principles that supported eugenics and the destruction of those considered to be of “lesser value”. Don’t fool yourself into believing that agenda has changed. They are just another part of the current culture of death. Racism is ugly, so it makes an unfortunate but not unexpected partner for Planned Parenthood. I have an unsettling article for example below. You can find it here:

MATTERS OF LIFE AND DEATH
Planned Parenthood: Wanting fewer blacks ‘understandable’
Abortion provider says ‘yes’ when ‘donor’ wants to reduce minorities

A student-run magazine at UCLA has revealed an undercover investigation in which representatives of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s abortion industry leader, admitted willingness to accepting a financial donation targeting the destruction of an unborn black baby.

Lila Rose, who edits The Advocate, previously revealed how Planned Parenthood officials expressed a willingness to conceal statutory rape, an investigative piece that earned her an appearance on the Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor.”

Now she’s told WND she hopes the taped responses of Planned Parenthood officials in seven states reveal to her local UCLA community and the nation the racist leanings of the organization.

WND calls to Planned Parenthood of Idaho, which was featured in The Advocate report, requesting a comment were not returned.

“Students on campus are shocked and saddened that such a huge organization would have racist leanings in the present day,” Rose told WND. “They are surprised to hear the truth about [Planned Parenthood founder] Margaret Sanger, and how the African-American community is being hurt by abortion.
“There’s a lot of surprise out there. Planned Parenthood does an excellent job of covering up the facts,” she said.

Sanger supported eugenics to cull those she considered unfit from the population. In 1921, she said eugenics is “the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.”

At one point, Sanger lamented “the ever increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.” Another time, Sanger wrote, “We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.”

According to Bryan Fisher, executive director of Idaho Values Alliance, Planned Parenthood, which gets an estimated $200 million annually from U.S. taxpayers, has located nearly 80 percent of its clinics nationwide in minority neighborhoods, and about one-third of all abortions are performed on blacks, even though they make up only 13 percent of the population.
Nationwide, almost half of all black pregnancies end in abortion, officials said.

“It turns out that blatant racism is alive and well in Idaho, but it’s not coming from the Aryan Nation types – it’s coming from way-left organizations like Idaho’s own Planned Parenthood,” Fischer said. “If Idaho is in fact a haven for white racism, it turns out that Planned Parenthood and not Richard Butler is to blame.”

Richard Butler, who died in 2004, was a notorious white supremacist who founded Aryan Nations in northern Idaho. He lost a 20-acre compound in 2000 when a $6.3 million civil judgment against his group led to a bankruptcy.

“Idaho didn’t have room for Richard Butler and shouldn’t have room for Planned Parenthood,” Fischer said.

The Advocate released a transcript of a conversation between an actor presuming to be a racist and wanting to make a donation, and a woman identified as Autumn Kersey, vice president of marketing for Planned Parenthood of Idaho.

Actor: I want to specify that abortion to help a minority group, would that be possible?
Planned Parenthood: Absolutely.
Actor: Like the black community for example?
Planned Parenthood: Certainly.
Actor: The abortion – I can give money specifically for a black baby, that would be the purpose?
Planned Parenthood: Absolutely. If you wanted to designate that your gift be used to help an African-American woman in need, then we would certainly make sure that the gift was earmarked for that purpose.
Actor: Great, because I really faced trouble with affirmative action, and I don’t want my kids to be disadvantaged against black kids. I just had a baby; I want to put it in his name.
Planned Parenthood: Yes, absolutely.
Actor: And we don’t, you know we just think, the less black kids out there the better.
Planned Parenthood: (Laughs) Understandable, understandable.
Actor: Right. I want to protect my son, so he can get into college.
Planned Parenthood: All right. Excuse my hesitation, this is the first time I’ve had a donor call and make this kind of request, so I’m excited, and want to make sure I don’t leave anything out.
The investigation included calls to Planned Parenthood in Idaho and half a dozen other states.
“I think Idahoans are going to be horrified and shocked at the blatant racism and bigotry exhibited by our local Planned Parenthood affiliate,” said Fischer. “I just cannot imagine they’re going to stand for that.”

He said the timing of the release of the information was intriguing, because the Idaho Legislature is scheduled this week to have its first public hearing on a bill written to prevent Idaho women from being forced into having abortions they do not want.

Rose said students at UCLA now have begun a petition to request the school cut its affiliations with Planned Parenthood.

She said the actor specifically asked about lowering “the number of black people,” and each PP branch called agreed to process the racially earmarked donation.

“None expressed concern about the racist reasoning for the donation,” The Advocate said.

The Advocate said an Ohio representative, identified as Lisa Hutton, listens to the racist reasoning, but confirmed Planned Parenthood “will accept the money for whatever reason.”

Rose said her UCLA campaign has been endorsed by Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King, who said she supports “the student campaign to get UCLA to cease its programs with Planned Parenthood.”

Another Planned Parenthood branch, in Kansas, is facing 107 misdemeanor and felonies charges for allegedly violating Kansas abortion law.

WND reported Rose previously posed as a 15-year-old seeking an abortion at a Planned Parenthood center in Santa Monica, Calif. She was equipped with a hidden camera when she met with an employee to discuss her options.

When Rose revealed she was 15 and her boyfriend was 23, the employee informed her Planned Parenthood was legally required to report the statutory rape, a transcript of the conversation shows.

The Planned Parenthood representative then suggested she could say she was 16 and avoid complications.

“Well, just figure out a birth date that works. And I don’t know anything,” the rep said.

The Texas-based pro-life group Life Dynamics previously conducted an extensive undercover project in which an adult volunteer posing as a 13-year-old called every Planned Parenthood clinic in the U.S., saying she was pregnant by a 22-year-old boyfriend. Almost without exception, the clinics advised her to obtain an abortion without her parents’ knowledge and told her how to protect her boyfriend, who would be guilty in any state of statutory rape.
